Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including pg-connect with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

var pgConnect = require("pg-connect")

pg-connect v2.0.2

Create a postgres connection and ensure it get's closed

DEPRECATED

As of pg@6, node-postgres has promise suport out of the box. Do not use this package. It is no longer maintained!

pg-connect

js-standard-style Circle CI Dependency Status

Connect to a postgres database with a promise api. Pretty much just an implementation of the suggestions in the bluebird api

Installation

npm install --save pg-connect

Usage

var Promise = require('bluebird')
var getConnection = require('pg-connect')(connectionString)

Promise.using(
  getConnection(),
  function (query) {
    return query('SELECT * from foo')
  }
).
then(function (results) {
  // ... use the results
})

where query is a promisified version of client.query in pg.

An example with transactions:

var Promise = require('bluebird')
var getConnection = require('pg-connect')(connectionString)

getConnection.withTransaction(function (query) {
  return query('SELECT * from foo')
}).
then(function (results) {
  // ... use the results
})

Also, getConnection.end is equivalent to pg.end. Similarly, getConnection.defaults is equivalent to pg.defauts.

Testing

  1. Ensure you have a local postgres database named pg_connect_test or export DATABASE_URL pointing to a database.
  2. npm test
